The British variant represents about 70 percent of coronavirus cases in Madeira, said regional deputy director of Health yesterday to RTP Madeira, assuming that this is a factor of concern.
In the last few weeks there has been an increase in the British variant. We had a prevalence of 35 percent, now approaching 70 percent of cases, which is a cause for concern. There are still occasional cases of some gatherings that result in transmission chains, said yesterday Bruna Gouveia
Madeira currently has 52 active transmission chains.
